If you're using the plying flyer you'll want to switch to the plying drive band, it's a little bigger than the standard driveband and if the band's too tight it can make treadling harder.

I leave both bands 'on' (but only one at a time actually around the wheel and the flyer of course) I take the one I'm not using, and to keep it out of the way bring it behind the wheel and coil it around the knob on the back (the one you take out to fold the wheel) if that makes any sense.

I found this easier than popping the c clip on the footman on and off all the time. I have considered replacing the c clip with a pin or something easier to remove.
